Comic-Con 2014: Hasbro Rolls Out Classic Dinobots in New ‘Transformers’ Set
We’re four movies into Michael Bay‘s ‘Transformers‘ series and the redesigned robots are still a sore point for many fans. Hasbro knows this as well as anyone, and they’re going to use that to make sure you drop some serious dough on new toys! The company revealed its new Comic-Con 2014 special edition toys, which should punch you right in the nostalgia box: it’s the original Dinobots in their original animated series designs!
IGN debuted these puppies, and even a lapsed ‘Transformers’ fan will probably give them a solemn nod of approval. We’re sure the redesigned Dinobots that will play a role in ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction‘ will have their fans and defenders, but there’s no way they’ll be as instantly iconic and recognizable as these guys. The full set, which retails for $159.99, includes, Grimlock, Snarl, Strafe and Slug — all of which are featured in the new movie — as well as packaging that transforms into Mount St. Hillary and the Autobot ark.
The toys can be picked up at booth #3329 at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, but a limited number will also be available online. So if you’re a ‘Transformers’ fan with a fistful of cash burning a hole in your pocket, be sure you get on this!
